Processa Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ: PCSA), a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company developing products to improve the survival and/or quality of life for patients with unmet medical needs, today announced that it has been cleared by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”) to proceed with a phase 2a clinical trial of PCS12852. The trial will study PCS12852 in the treatment of patients with moderate to severe gastroparesis, an unmet medical need condition for which patients need alternative, safer treatment options. “This decision by the FDA is an important milestone in the clinical development program for PCS12852,” said Dr. David Young, CEO and chairman of Processa. “We have clinical data demonstrating that PCS12852 improves the gastric emptying rate in patients with functional constipation. Our IND will allow us to demonstrate that PCS12852 also improves the gastric emptying in gastroparesis patients, a market estimated to be as much as $1.6 billion. We expect to ramp up our phase 2a gastroparesis trial over the next few months and have our first patient dosed in Q1-2022.”
